COLLEGE yVEWS Vol. 2. No. ir. WELLESLEY, MASS., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1903. Price, 5 Cents. Die Bccrdigung von Fraiulein Caria Wenckebach. Es war der letzte Tag cles alten Jahres, ein strahlend schoner Wiiitertag! Schim- mernd in weissem Schneegewand lagen Thai und Hiigel, aber die wiirzigen! frischen Liifte erweckten Friihlingsahnungen in unserer Brust. Tiefblau wolbte sich der Himmel fiber der Erde, und klare Vogel- stimmen jubelten hinaus in die scbone Welt. Aber alle Schonheit und Freude der Natur erweckte keinen Widerhall in unsern Herzen, denn heute sollteu wir sie zu Grabe geleiten, die uns Fiihrerin und Freundin gewesen war. Miss Caswell, Miss Pendleton und Miss Sherrard hatten liebevoll und fiirsorglicli air die letzten, traurigen Anordnungen getroffen. Tiefe Stille herrschte in " College Hall !" Mit leisen Fusstritten scTiritten alle dahin, und spraclien niit gedanipften Stimmen. Als wir die Kapelle betraten, fiel unser erster Bliok auf den Sarg, welober direkt vor dem Gebetpult, auf einem vergoldeten Uiitergestell ruhte. Erwar mit hellgrauem Tuch bescblagen, und auf dem Sargdeckel befand sich ein silbernes Schild, mit Xamen und Datum der Geburt und des Todes von Friiulein Wenckebach. Ein Teil des Sarg- deekels war abgeschraubt, so dass wir noch einmal ihr liebes Angesicht beschauen konnten. Ihr Haupt ruhte auf einem weissen Cachemirkissen, welches mit Veilchen iibersiit war, und in der linken Hand hielt sie ein Veilchenstraiisschen. Sie war so gekleidet, wie wir gewohnt waren, sie zu sehen, in schwarz, mit zierlich gestickteni, weissem Kragen und weisser Weste. Aber die Majestiit des Todes ruhte auf ihren Ziigen und verlieh ihr etwas Fremdes. Dann hiluften wir Blumen um sie her, welche von nah und fern in reichster Fiille gesandt worden waren. Zartrosa Rosen, ein Geschenk der Lehrerinnen in College Hall, Veilchen von der Agora, einer Verbindung, deren Mitglied die Verstorbene gewesen war ; prachtvolle weisse Rosen von der Verlagsbuchliandlung von Ginn & Co., und daneben noch viele andere Blumenspenden von Freunden, Bekannten und Verehrern. Wir breiteten einen Teppich von lebenden Blumen unter den Sarg ; von dem ganz unter duftenden Bliiten verborgenen Sarg- deckel liingen zartgrune Ranken herab ; Blattpflanzen bildeten den Hintergrund, auf dem Gebetpult standen hochstiimmige Kosen, und von diesem herab hing ein gros- ser, frischgriiner Lorbeerkranz, mit langer, breiter Schleife aus Atlasband in den dent- schen Farben : eine Liebesgabe der deut- schen Lehrerinnen von Welle.sley College. Von zwcilt bis halb zwei war die Kapelle fur diejenigen geoffnet, welche die Verstor- bene noch einmal zu sehen wfinschten. Dann wurde der Sarg geschlossen. Zuerst wurde eine Glasplatte herubergedeckt und dann der obere Teil des Sargcleckels ange schraubt, alles lautlos und unter tiefem Schweigen. Als der Sargdeckel sie nun ganz verbarg, trat Miss Hazard hinzu und legte einen grossen Strauss weisser Lilien dkrauf nieder. Von Frieden und Aufer- stehung predigten die zarten Bluten, und wohl verstanden wir ihre Sprache ! Von Miss Pendleton's Zimmer aus, in der Njihe der Kapelle, setzte sich der Zug der Hauptleidtragenden in Bewegung. Voran schritt der Geistliche der Episknpalkirclie in Wellesley, Mr. Nattress, ihm folgten vier Uerren von der Fakultiit, Herr von Mach und Mr. Young, Mr. Gould und Mr. Morse, als Ehi-entriiger. Ihnen scblossen sich Miss Hazard und Friiulein Miiller an, Mrs. Durant und Mrs. Farlow, als Reprii- sentantinnen des Verwaltungsrates, dann Miss Sherrard und Friiulein Mitzlaff, Friiu- lein Reuther und Friiulein Stoeber. Als die ersten des Zuges die Kapelle betraten, erhoben sich die Anwesenden. Ob- gleich es in der Mitte der Weihnachtsferien war, und die traurige Kachricht erst am Abend des achtundzwanzigsten Dezember hatte ausgesandt werden kiinnen, hatten sich dennoch gegen hundert Personen einge- funden, umderEntsohlafenen die letzte Elire zu erweisen. Nachdem die Leidtragenden ihre Pliitze in der Vorderreibe, dem Sarge gegeniiber, eingonommen hatten, wiihrend sich der Geistliche zu Hiiupten desselben stellte, begann der Trauergottesdienst. Der- selbe war kui-z, aber eindrucksvoll, dem Gebetbuclie der Episkopalkirche en tlehnt, und endete mit dem Vaterunser. Darauf spielte die Orgel den Choral, " O Haupt voll Blut und Wunden," wiihrend dessen die Versammelten still die Kapelle verliesen. AVir aber lauschten in tiefer Ruhrung den altbekannten Kliingen, und aus der Melodie Ifisten sich die Worte : " Wenn ich eimnal soli scheiden. So scheide nicht von mil', Wenn ich den Tod soil leiden. So tritt du dann herffir. Wenn mir am allerbiingsten Wird um das Herze sein So reiss' mich aus den Angsten, Kraft deiner Angst und Pein." Die letzten Kliinge waren verhallt! Vier Angestellte des College hoben den Sarg auf, und der Zug folgte in der friiheren Reihen- folge dnrch den Korridor, die Mitteltrejipe hinunter. Dort hoben sie den Sarg auf die Schnltern, und in langsamem Trauer- schritt trugen sie ihn durch die Halle, durch die Reihen der Freunde, welche bis zur Ausgangsthiir Spalier bildeten und mit ehrfurchtsvoll gebeugten Hiiuptern den irdischen Uberresten von Carla Wenckebach Lebewohl sagten. Draussen wurde der Sarg in den Leich- enwagen gehoben, welcher sich bald darauf in Bewegung setzte, gefolgt von sechs Trauerkutschen. Ausser den vorher person- lich Erwiihnten, gaben ihr auch Miss Bates, Miss Pendleton und Miss Scudder das letzte Geleit, welche mit der Entscblafenen beson- ders lange und intim als Kolleginnen ver- bunden gewesen waren. Gegen drei Uhr erreichte der Leichenzug den Friedhof, welcher ausserhalb Welles- leys, in tiefster Rube und Abgeschiedenheit liegt. Das Grab befindet sich nahe der Eingangspforte, und eine weite, wunder- volle Aussicht thut sich dort den iiberrasch- ten Blicken auf. Wir stellten uns im Halbkreis am Grabe auf. Die zu beiden Seiten aufgeworfenen Erdhiigel waren mit Schnee bedeckt, und das Innere der Gruft hatte man mit duftenden Tannenzweigen besteckt, welche mit ihren Spitzen oben zusammenstiessen. Lautlos wurde der Sarg hinabgelassen. unter seiner Last senkten sich die Zweige tief hernieder, schnellten dann aber wieder empor und bildeten einen griinen Baldachin fiir die stille Schliiferin, welche dort von ihrer Arbeit ausruht. Darauf trat der Geistliche vor und hielt eine kurze Grabrede. Nach den Worten "von Erde bist du genommen, zu Erde sollst dn werden," warf jeder der Anwesen- den einige Blumen in die Gruft hinab. Der Prediger sprach darauf den Segen und das Vaterunser, womit die einfaehe aber ergreif ende Trauerfeierlichkeit endete. Ehe wir den Gottesacker verliessen, wandte ich die Blicke noch einmal nach der Stelle, wo wir sie bestattet hatten. Da lag das Grab, umflossen von strahlendeni Sonnenschein, zu beiden Seiten die glitz- ernde Schneeclecke, aus welcher die daruber gebreiteten Blumen zu sprossen schienen, und die Worte des Dichters kamen mir in den Sinn : " Aber das Grab ist nicht tief, es ist der leuchtende Fusstritt eines Engels, der uns sucht!"

Holt. 1903 A memorial number of College News for Professor Wenckebach was planned some weeks ago, at the request of several people who desired further material than that furnished by the February Magazine. It was to contain an account of the funeral serv- ices, an article on Fraulein Wenckebach's student days, and the speech made at the memorial service by Miss Hodgkins. It was thought best by the editors to put the account of the funeral, which was writ- ten by a member of the German Depart- ment, in German, and in this statement lies the reason for the long delay which lias at- tended the publication of this number. The difficulty, not hitherto realized by the editors, of having a German article printed in an American office, is very great; the first issue, there- fore, in spite of unusual care in the proof-reading, contained so many typogra- phical errors that it was necessary to sup- press the whole edition for the week, and bring it out at this late date. This issue contains, in addition, some expressions of appreciation which have come from Friiu- lein Wenckebach's friends and former stu- dents. So much in explanation of the delay. The opporliuiity. Iiowever, ot .saying a word concerning the manner of getting out the News each week seems too good a one to be lost. There is, natur- ally, some misunderstanding in College, on a subject which this incident brings forcibl.y before our attention; namely when does the Xkws go to press, how long does it stay there, and why is it not al- ways typographicall.y jiertect and out promptly to the minute? In justice to themselves, the editors are glad to answer these questions; feeling sure that when the mechanism of the thing is un- derstood, they will receive less blame for mistakes and delays.

Mss. coming in later than that cannot be insured a place in the paper. As Wednesday, morning is the date of issue, this leaves three working days for the setting tip, proof-reading, printing, and delivery of the papers,. We hardly real- ize what ail out-of-the-way place Wellesley is; express deliveries and mails are few and far between, and the closest calculation is necessarj' to insure promptness in finish- ing each week's edition. This brief time allows, of course, only one proof-reading, and everyone who knows anything about proof, knows how impossible it is to pro- duce a perfect result from one reading. Moreover, it often happens that some im- portant occurence on Saturday, Sunday or >[onday has to be written up, and sent in as fresh cojiy with the jiroof-sheets on Mon- day. Such copy allows no pioof-readiiig. and it is this which accounts for most of the errors in the linished sheet; the printing of '"Segenda" for "Legonda" >vas, for in- stance, done from la,1je- Bopy which could not be tested. When the Xew)j. comes out on Thursday morning instead/hf Wednesday, it is because the exjiress wns late. Wellesley is in (he "suburbs, " and altliough the editors and printers may be unfailingly prompt \\ ith their part, the express or iiarcel delivery may cause any number of hours delay, when the service is merely that of a small town like Wellesley. The editors give this explanation because of comjOaints which have been made con- cerning cai'eless jiroof-readiiig and delays, and which tliey felt were undeserved. It is their duty and pleasure to serve the News subscribers as well as they may, and every- thing that is in their power to do they do willingly. But in a live-cent weekly which is issued in three days, has long distances (o cover between imblishing and printing of- fices, gets only one jironf-reading, and has to contend with the evils of country delivery, it is impossible to secure perfection. 8HEPARD, NORWELL i GO.

It was In the years 1870-72, the eventful years of the Franco-Prus- sian War, that Carla Wenckebach was at school in Hanover. The best institutions in Germany at that time for the education of women were the newly opened '■ seminars," the " Ausbildungs Anstalten," under the supervision of the Prussian Commission that gave semi- yearly examinations before awarding certiflcates of scholarship and assurance of fitness for teaching. Among the German girls that came to the seminar in Hanover, eager to take advantage of this new opportunity for thorough study, was Carla Wenckebach. Most of the students were looking forward to the work of teaching, but it was said in the school that she had no need to teach, her parents had consented to her coming in the hope that she would go home again to their large estate in the country prepared to help in the educa- tion of her younger brothers and sisters. Into this school at the same time came one American girl. She had been trained in a New England public school and her ambition to get a mastery of the French and German languages had led her across the water. Coming into this school she found opportunities for other study than that of language beyond her expectation. Her private teacher did the wise and kindly thing in commending her to the care of a little set of German girls who made place for her at once among themselves. And so for two years they became inseparable comrades in school life, — "Hans," the serious, unim- aginative student, '-Martha," the noble, sometimes revolutionary spirit, "Laura," the gentle and the well-born, "Cato" Wencke- bach, and the American girl. Miss French, whom they promptly christened "Polly, the old-fashioned girl,' after she had intro- duced them to Miss Alcott. It is to the memories of this Ameri- can friend that we are indebted for a glimpse of Miss Wencke- bach in her student days. "Her little figure," she writes, "is the most picturesque and unique of the many students I recall. I can see her now as she stood in the large lecture-room, clad in her red Highland plaid dress, made with yoke and belt, buttoned down the back, the round skirt innocent of gores and coming only to her boot tops ; her hair, the color of corn silk, worn short, square cut in the neck and drawn straight back from the forehead with a round rubber comb. Her age must have been just eighteen, but the impression made was of sixteen years or younger. If I call her masculine the expression seems too strong, but certainly the carriage was commanding and the whole bearing repudiated everything sug- gestive of feminine weakness or dependence, a most unusual atti- tude for a German girl. 'I'o the care of this masterful small person who radiated strength, I was commended by our teacher. ' Cato ! Cato Wenckebach ! I never heard of a girl before who was christened Cato !" was my mental comment. It was her true name, an old family name, as I afterwards found. Later she substituted for it the more feminine Carla, and the change was significant, but in those days ' Cato' suited her well.'" Somewhat to my surprise, I have found that it was not the delightful humor that characterized Miss Wenckebach that made the most impression on her comrades in the early days. Rather it was the intense seriousness, power of sustained work, indomit- able will that never knew defeat. One incident illustrates her energy. It was a matter of great Importance to have seats near the eye of the professor in order to get the most benefit from lectures and quizzes, and seats occupied the first day were held through a semester. "We agreed," Miss French says, "to get to the seminar early to secure desirable places. I reached a lecture room at 7 o'clock in the morning to find it nearly filled and Cato and the other members of our coterie ranged at the front desks, the best seat of all. the one directly in front of the Professor, reserved for me, the foreigner. Cato and her friend had arisen at four o'clock, proceeded to the building, where they found the doors locked ; unable to arouse the sleeping janitor, they had gone around to the back, where Cato had scaled a ten-foot wall, 'boost- ed ' by Martha, gained admission for herself and her companion and of course had the first choice of seats." Surely no better protector could a young foreigner have ! And a student could have no more helpful friend.

The five girls quizzed each other, and often as lead- er, as drill-master, stood the commanding little figure with serious face and quiet, strong voice, a born teacher. Professors and stu- dents alike admired the unselfish, energetic, gifted girl. In the class room she tooK high rank. When she was graduated at the age of nineteen she passed the examinations of the Prussian government with honor. The Director of the College delighted in her work. Her essa}'s, in subject matter, in expression, even in hand writing, he praised as the worthy work of " Cato, the noble Eoman," as he delighted to call her. Student life in Hanover gave much opportunity to see what was best upon the stage, but such amusement involved no dissipation. Students went together quietly and simply, and so early was the performance that nine o'clock often found the girls at home again at their supper after seeing a classic drama or one of the best of operas. " I heard of theater and opera nights." her friend says, '■ but I never associated our Cato with amusements. When, how- ever, at the end I declared that I was too tired to attend the final merry-making of the students after graduation. ' Have you ever heard Cato whistle to piano accompaniment? No? Then you must!' was the one argument used to overcome my decision. And Cato's whistling was as noteworthy as her essays." After that night the friends separated, not to meet again until years afterwards in New York when the German girl had become the Miss Wenckebach that VVellesley knows, ciianged in some subtle way, her friend thought, " the seriousness all pervaded by a new and captivating humor, and, while tliere was no abatement of the masterful energy, one felt in look, bearing and dress that she was glad to be a woman and to work for women In America, she had found her place and was happy in it." Prof, von Mach has spoken the wonder that many felt that a Ger- man woman in her day should have been able to achieve so nuich in the field of Scholarship. The universities of Germany were not then open to women and tlierc were no women's colleges with care- fully graded preparatory sctiools. No, but university-trained men just then were giving to tlicso picked women, «ho hoped to be teachers themselves, a fine and thorough training, not in all the sub- jects that an American college ofl'ers to its students, but In some that are of the highest value. 'J"he classics were entirely neglected, and mathematics and science very inade(|uately treated, but there were excellent courses in literature, German, French and English, and in grammar and composition In those languages; wide and compre- hensive work was demanded in History, and it need hardly to be said that the work in Pedagogy and Methods of Teaching was inspir- ing and interesting. The lectures on these subjects were supi)le- mented by opportunity to observe instructors at their work in all grades, from the beginners, the A-B-C-I)arians thro' the High School dep.artment, the Ausbildungs Anstalt, having its home in the Hohere Tochter Schule. The departments which particularly ap- pealed to Frl. Wenckebach were the lower classes, the High School French course, and the German grammar, composition and reading courses of the middle grades, which were under the supervision of the Seminar instructor in Methodik. To her enthusiasm caught from this work the existence of the pedagogical department in our own college is a witness. Prof. Wenckebach's achievements were her own, the result of her individual endowments, wide reading, deep thought. But one who knew her as her American friend must feel that for them both the foundations were somehow laid deep, and nmst pause and ponder. If she be a college woman, whether out of her better advantages she has gained the same power of concentration and of sustained work. Eliza H. Kkndkici^. RIDIINQ HABITS of Every Description.

Fancy low-lying, seagirt lands, and over them, as far as the eje can reach, grouped little Hollandish villages of red-tiled houses and an oddly-shaped church spire, looking like an exaggerated candlestick, rising from each village; then, at the end, as If stretching protecting arms over each hamlet, a great windmill. In a village like this, I was received as the guest of Professor Wenckebach. 'i'hen fancy, a little apart from the village, a large, brick house, half manor and half farmhouse, surrounded by a marvelous gar- den, in which beds of roses and pansies nodded socially to beds of marjoram and thyme and early vegetables, and an arbor Invited to tea, and a long philosopher's walk, shaded by cypresses, allured to contetnplation. On the roof of the house was a fine stork's nest. "You are just In time to see four lltt'e beastles learn to fly!" cried Fhiulein Carla, as she welcomed me under this East Fries- land roof. Within the house, I especially recall two large rooms, separated by a stone flagged hall. The one was the dining-room, tapestried in crimson and hung with large engravings representing great scenes from the I'iad, the parting of Hector and Andromache, Achilles sulking in his tent and the burning of Ilium. The other side of the hall, the quaint Dutch parlor, with historic furniture and odd bric-a-brac, was an unfailing center of social delight. Where did Frauleln Carla get that love of justice, that demo- cratic uprightness of soul? One day she came to me bearing an enormous Koah's ark, in which were a hundred and fifty animals In every state of decrepitude. "Aus der KindheitI" she said merrily, and handed me a little book, on which wms printed in cramped, childish hand, " Laws to Govern the Animals in the Ark." I read them and answered laughingly, " No wonder you came to America, Friiulein Carla, for these are the laws of the Republic." Where did she get that fine, historic fancy? Annther happy day she took me to an old tower, with a look out toward the sea, and we climbed together the stairs to look through the hole whence the fabled sea-pirate watched for his prey in times long gone. Another day we spent all the sunny liours rambling about a ruined castle, with Its dry moat and broken drawbridge, its dungeon keep and deserted banqueting-hall. Still another to the island of Nordeney, where Hanoverian kings anciently held their court, the palace walls washed by the North- ern Sea. Where did she get her pride of ancestry, that fine noblesse oblige which made her treat with equal graciousness the lowly or the high-born, the servant or the titled? It was Sunday afternoon when her father came in, his arms full of yellow parchments, one ornamented with a curious ancestral tree, whose roots sprang from ancient German nobilitv. Others were diplomas and degrees won by the family from the German universities, and one was the oddly-illustrated title-deed of the beautiful home where I was entertained. One day, as she talked with her brother, then a young advocate from Cologne, they were recalling, among other reminiscences of their childhood, the noble tragedv that they wrote together when both were under twelve years of age ; the remarkable denouement and the difficulty they had iu adapting it to stage purposes. I turned to Frau Wenckebach and Inquired, " Did Fraulein Carla do her sewing and knitting like any good German maiden?" "That did she not!" was the Instant reply. " She never knew where her knitting was, and when it was found the stitches were dropped." The bright, wliolesome childhood had Its outcome in the faith- ful, useful life. In whatever sphere her freed soul to day Is living, let us believe that she does, as we, suffer God's will. Louise Manning Hodgkins. Jewelv^ tor l^ouna Xabies, Dress, Outing, Business.

In addition to the tributes which were paid to the life of Friiulein Wenckebach in the speeches made at the memorial service, come others, sent by those who have known her, and whose gratitude to her has found warm and involuntary expression. "You do not need to be told that all who have known and loved Wellesley will feel, that a part of it has gone with Professor Wencke. bach's death.'' "When I was in College we all used to think her and her classes an inspiration; and every one of us that has had the privilege of seeing her since our student days, realizes what great-hearted womanliness and lively sympathy ch.ar.acterized her in addition to her scholarliness. So many of tlie .41umna' remember her with affeelion tluat her death will mean a personal loss, widespread and deeply felt." "Those of us who knew Friiulein Wenckebach even a little, loved her as our professor and personally." "It was not my good fortune to know Friiulein Wenckebach, but I have always felt a warm affection for her, for, with all the t'ollcge, I have shared in the good cheer and insi>iration of her prcsi-Uce. I find it hard to realize that I cannot hope now to meet her in the halls or to win a 'good morning' from her, but I am stronger and hap- pier because I am privileged to treasure the memory of her unfailing kindliness.'' "I feel that we have met with a great loss when one so wise and strong and fearless and true has been called away. Such companionship and friendship as hers is one of the best things life h-as to offer." "College will never seem quite the same place without her. I can't bear to think of it, but I'm so glad to have known her a little. Such a great splendid life isn't (inished. It is only somehow, some- where going on to more perfect completion. ( That she believed her. self, and it is easier for us, too. to believe it at times like this. )" "We who are away can scarcely realize that Friiulein Wenckebach will not be at College when we come back, and we feel almost as though the loss to the College would be unbearable."

"We shall all miss her so. She was such a dear teacher and so ready to help one. Perhaps the most natural expression of the girls' feeling toward her was the way we generally spoke of her, ' dear little Frau- lein Wenckebach.' College and German will miss her so much." "So strong of thought, so sound and sweet of heart she was, — so sturdy and steadfast, and full of life. While we grieve for ourselves we realize too that our Wellesley has met with an irreparable loss. She has done a great work for the College ; how sorely her strong fine mind, her splendid enthusiasm, her teaching will be missed ! " "The memorial services in their simplicity were so consistent with the strong character of Professor Wenckebach, that the note of our respect and of our sorrow could not but be concordant with the grand harmony of her continuous life and influence, here and beyond." "It was indeed a great shock to hear of Fraulein Wenckebach's death, and I can't get used to it at all. I don't like to think how we shall miss her. Hers was such a gallant little figure, and the mere seeing her gave one good courage and made one respect one's calling. It was pitiful to see her this autumn, she was so evidently suffering, and yet she had such a stout heart and answered so bravely that to listen to her one would suppose her illness was a very trifling matter." "As I look back to her first years in the College I seem to have been impressed with her simple quiet manner in daily intercourse. Then we began to hear of enthusiasm in her classes called forth by thorough training and love for her work. Her persistent unfailing energy made her successful in her undertakings. The amoimt of mental work she accomplished in these years was truly astonishing. One would hard- ly realize that she ever slept.'" "My College days would not have been much to me without Fraulein Wenckebach. Every morning I looked forward with pleasure to the rec- itation with her. She always came into class as if she were glad to see us again, and she never left us without having said something to make one think. I have had light on many problems in life from her words. It was she who first gave me faith in myself and encour- aged me to take up teaching as a profession. She believed that I had certain strong points that would make a teacher of me, and to-day I am what I am because of her belief in me." "Dear Fraulien Wenckebach seemed to belong to Wellesley, and it won't ever be the same place without her. I have always valued the memory of the two years when I sat at her table, and learned to know something of the broadmindedness and beauty of character which she always expressed."

Many tributes will be paid her '^PB&ory by. her colleagues in the educational world, those who know wfi'at her brilliant talents and wide learning have done for Wellesley as "an institution, but the offerings of the girls who have sat under her teaching, though more humble, will be more loving and grateful when they recall the sympathetic encouragement and the inspiring breadth of view she gave them." "Wellesley is infinitely poorer this new year, but she will not soon lose the memory of her who gave so freely out of her own abundance, and we who knew her can never forget her inspiration in the class- room and the delight of meeting her outside." "My gratitude to her for what she was to me during my course can never cease, and I can but feel a personal sense of void in her going, almost incapable though I am of realizing that so splendid and active a life has gone out from our Wellesley world, where it seemed that she was a part of the very foundations, and must stay always. No one can ever tell half of what she has meant to Wellesley girls, and surely she has earned a great reward." "To us who have gone out from her teaching, it is hard to realize that her inspiring personality can never induence future Wellesley students as it has us. Her principles, her very words are as distinct in my mind as if she were before me to-day." "FriiuleinWenckebach was wonderful, not only as a teacher, which every one knows, but as a woman, a great-hearted woman, the side of her thit I wish every one had known, too." "It is hard to realize in this remote place that dear FriiuleinWencke- bach is not there, any more. She did for us more than she ever knew. Think how many many girls and women — many whom she would not know even by name — have received from her inspiration for true and high thinking! She always makes me think of Browning's '(Iram- marian's Funeral.' She, too, should lie on some noble height."
